“GB3-Scout”, an Atlanta based ‘As-Built Plan’ service has launched a new interior scanning and drafting service that can deliver “existing condition” CAD drawings in as little as a day.

Using a patented, proprietary, fully mobile scanning system one of the firm’s trained operators will scan the interior of a space in minutes then download the data to a remote CAD designer. The designer will then produce an accurate, dimensional floor plan of the space scanned ~ all in a matter of hours. A video record of the scan is completed simultaneously, measurements are field verified, and still photos for detail reference are taken. GB3-Scout uses AutoDesk’s Revit software for plan development which allows a delivery of CAD files in multiple formats.    

The service has already been used for due diligence, office space planning, renderings and even 3D printing of existing buildings. The CAD files can provide quantity schedules, area calculations, door, window and hardware counts, all as part of the quick and simple process. In addition, a broad selection of detail can be provided by GB3 including electrical device locations, kitchen and bath cabinet elevations, reflective ceiling plans, and take off data for cost estimations.    

GB3’s flexibility gives architects, interior designers, space planners, contractors, estimators, leasing agents, facility managers, property managers, investors and lenders a valuable new tool. The system has been used to develop plans for apartments, office space, warehouses, and residential property. The company can scan and send point cloud files directly to the client’s own drafting team if desired.

GB3 – Scout is a sister firm of Diversified Trading Solutions, a national supplier and installer of multi-family and commercial cabinetry. GB3 was formed out of the construction industry’s need for a practical solution for fast, accurate and cost effective as-built construction plans. The company was founded by principals with extensive real estate and construction experience.
